(From the publisher):
Quin was on his way to the Orient to search for his parents, who disappeared there twenty years ago in the confusion of WWII. But he wasn't expecting to discover that Mom and Dad had changd the course of WWII--or that their spy ring included a pederastic Catholic priest, a one-eyed Japanese secret police chief, and a Russian anarchist, intellectual, and sensualist who specialized in erudite translations of Japanese pornography. Nor was Quin prepared to discover Mama, a nightclub owner and one-time laudanum addict who slept with 10,000 men before she was twenty-five. But these are just the beginning of Quin's revealations. . .
